traffic is very light only 4:52 and we're not at 5:00 o'clock. we usually don't see rush hour until 6:00 o'clock or 6:15. we are looking at burlington bristol bridge. the it is difficult to tell here but they have closed the burlington bristol bridge for an opening. so plan according arely if that is where you are headed. rest of the bridges are doing fine. and traveling on i-95 and it looks just as nice and serene. that was i-95 around girard but speed sensors high up in the 50's and does not matter where you are going it is pennsylvania jersey delaware, nice all over. we have a construction project on the 42 freeway southbound between the 25 and 55, left lane block for quite sometime. we also have construction on route 130 southbound black horse pike where two right lanes will be blocked until 6:00 a.m. but it seems to be that weather-wise we might have a few disruptions as well. >> absolutely, really is all about location location location.
traveling south we have much better shot to end up with some snow today and specifically this morning for your morning drive. we are already starting to see signs of the snow out there, in rehoboth, boardwalk place nice bright shot with the land fall lit here but obviously a fresh little layer of snow on the boardwalk right now and just getting underway folks. this is a quick hitting storm but it does pack moisture and that is indicated here because you have such bright colors dark shade of purple and green and bright red and yellow that you see. you have a lot of moisture to work with. even though you are on the fringe of this storm and we can zoom in and show you with a tighter zoom. we too will even up with at least a opportunity to pick up a couple inches of snow out of this namely through southern most counties. you can see it is trying to move into lancaster county, portions of chester, you might have flurries and showers up that way as well. general idea is it is south
east half of our area that end up getting hit the hardest. now it would include philadelphia a but would i say nothing more than a coating absolutely a max an inch of snow is expectation in the city and further south where you can see winter weather advisories through southern new jersey and winter storm warning through southern most del marva including sussex county delaware you may even up with three to five out of this. let go to future weather and jump in the early morning drive. this is a slow creep of snow again, model and interpretation of how things will shake out but by seven eight, 9:00 a.m. you don't have anything going on in bucks county or north fringe of it. depending on your location it will just, you know, you have to base your morning around that further south more likely to see snow. 28 degrees is expected high today and tomorrow. we will get you in the 20's saturday but more sunshine and another system is already here as we look ahead to sunday night, back over to you.

get out the door and get to your destination on time. lets go out to storm scan three. we have a slow creep northward here, with that moisture overtaking the first state right now into cape may county cumberland, starting to see very first flakes here. we will be relying upon our weather watcher network in these count toys give us a good idea how things are looking in these neighborhood but we know this will be with you at least through the rest of the morning. we have good shot to pick up some good accumulations here through southern most delaware especially but in through say southern new jersey as well as kent and new castle counties, in delaware probably one to 3 inches will fall. depending on your location you may in the see much of anything. now you could end up with a couple stray snow showers to the far western suburbs and lehigh valley but it will not accumulate much. maybe a flurry in the poconos. the it is another upside down systems. steady light the snow will reach city and
